Facebook adds video via Instagram app

A little more than a year ago, Facebook tumbled onto the public stock exchange and made progress toward opening a second campus in Menlo Park, down the street from its main headquarters at 1 Hacker Way.

The software side of the social media company has not sat idle; in April Facebook launched "Home," a new interface for smartphones. And last week, the company announced the addition of video to its Instagram photo-sharing application on June 20.

The latest move comes on the heels of Twitter's launch of "Vine" in January, which lets users post up to six seconds of video. Instagram's new feature captures up to 15 seconds and provides a set of 13 filters to customize the footage.
